Chopper Read, aka the real Tasmanian Devil, was a GD psychopath. In this video, you'll watch him force a reporter into playing a game of Russian Roulette.

Chopper insists there's a live slug in the gun. He spins and spins the cylinder and points the gun at his head...hesitates for a second then pulls the trigger. He then points the gun at the reporter, and asks her if she's ready...seemingly pulls back when she says she doesn't want to play. Then points and pulls the trigger again.

Chopper was an Australian criminal and author. He was the subject of the movie Chopper, where he was portrayed by Eric Bana. He wrote semi-autobiographical books, and crime novels. He passed away in 2013 of liver cancer.
